   New Fitness Installation in St. Margarets Aims to Cater to Older Residents    18 March, 2024

If curiosity has got the better of you, you might have noticed some groundworks and an unusual installation in St. Margaret’s recently. This is part of a new initiative to install fitness equipment specifically designed to cater to our older residents.

With the recognition that the mean age of residents within the parish is on the rise, and acknowledging our increasingly diverse population, the local council has taken steps to ensure that everyone’s needs are met. The new fitness installation is just one example of this inclusive approach.

We’re thrilled to announce that, thanks to a timely break in the wet weather, we’ve been able to install the new outdoor gym equipment at St. Margaret’s Play Area by mid-March, well ahead of our initial Easter Bank Holiday deadline.

Our community has long awaited this addition, and we’re excited to see it come to fruition. As mentioned in our April 2023 Newsletter, St. Margaret’s was selected as the ideal location for this project aimed at promoting a healthier lifestyle for residents of all ages. Despite the challenges posed by persistent rain, our team was ready to leap into action the moment the skies cleared.

We invite everyone to come and enjoy the new facilities, designed for both older children and adults. It’s more than just a play area; it’s a step towards a more active and connected community.
